My husband went blind in the left eye on our way for a GP appointment. Our GP assesed him and wrote a letter for us to take to AEU wanted to phone an ambulance but I (wife) drove us there. Arriving around 1130. GP suspected a minor stroke and bleeding included in the letter. The department was being run by junior doctors! I witnessed many things in the 7/8 hours we waited before eventually seeing a consultant! Who then felt a ct scan was urgently needed! Need I go on? I shall be writing to the Medical DIrector with my concerns. I Will add my husband has been battling Leukemia since 2011 undergoing chemo and underwent astem cell transplant in January 2013. Still not out of the woods. I am sure the Consultant in hematology at Russell hall who battled for my husband to keep him alive and the Professor at the QE who have both worked hard to keep my husband alive would be disgusted at his treatment in AEU.
